Printer Friendly Version Of American Sociological Association: Section Listservs

ASA Section Listservs

Each ASA section receives two listserv lists to facilitate its communication with members. Announcement lists are used by Section Officers to Announce upcoming section news and other relevant news, while Discussion lists are available to facilitate intellectual exchange and networking between section members. Announcement listservs are for section members only. Members may not add themselves to an Announcement listserv. ASA Staff updates listserv members during the first week of each month. Hence, members who joined on the 6th or 7th may have to wait several weeks before receiving their first message from the section listserv.

Should you have any difficulty with the listserv, please feel free to contact

Digests package a week's worth of listserv messages into a single article. They are useful for reducing inbox clutter or if you don't have much time to read messages everyday. Digests work for both Announcement and Discussion Listservs. If you want to set up digests on multiple lists, you will have to send commands for each one separately.
